Save a neighbor this Socktober!
Donate blood to save local lives and receive limited-edition Kentucky socks
Kentucky Blood Center needs area residents to donate blood and help ensure an adequate blood supply. Patients at the 70+ Kentucky hospitals served by KBC rely on donors to roll up their sleeves and save a neighbor with regular blood donations.
Blood products are often used to help cancer patients, trauma patients, women in childbirth and individuals with chronic illnesses like sickle cell anemia. Blood donors who regularly donate at local blood drives ensure that that blood is on the shelf to help these patients in times of need.
Donors at this upcoming Kentucky Blood Center blood drive will receive our limited-edition #SaveANeighbor Kentucky socks:
Louisa First Baptist Church
Friday, October 30 from 1–6 pm
at 301 West Pike Street, Louisa
Blood donors must be 17-years-old), weigh at least 110 pounds, be in general good health, show a photo I.D. and meet additional requirements. Sixteen-year-olds can donate with a signed parental permission slip, which can be found at kybloodcenter.org.
